It was Claude Spohr, councilor of Saint-Pierre-de-Cernières who, after noting the shortage of gives when it comes to cultural occasions within the rural villages of the territory, began, a number of months in the past, a venture of grouping municipalities in affiliation. The aim of it? Bringing the tradition nearer to the inhabitants.
